Aluminum is used for making truck bodies and structures, railcars, vessels, automobile components etc.


Alcoa has a large variety of products for the commercial transportation segment. Because it is light and recyclable the use of aluminum leads to a reduction in tire wear, improves fuel economy and helps maintain the maximum load volume within the standards demanded by law.


An example of how aluminum can help in automobile safety and economy is the aluminum chassis, which is more durable and corrosion-resistant.


Aluminum is also an excellent heat conductor, which makes it ideal for manufacturing radiators, compressors and condensers.
